LTRP Note: Please see the video below, which is an 8-minute talk Pope Francis recently gave regarding this matter. While listening to him talk, it was hard not to think of the martyrs described in Foxe’s Book of Martyrs, many of whom died at the hands of Roman papacy because they would not accept Catholic doctrine of the Eucharist. Is this where we are heading again? As Roger Oakland often says, history repeats itself. See our article “If Rick Warren is Right, Why Did These Martyrs Even Die At the Hands of the Roman Catholic Church?”

The eight-minute video was for the “Celebration of Christian Unity” event organized by John 17 Ministries out of Phoenix, Ariz., which seeks to unite Christians and Catholics.
“I feel like saying something that may sound controversial, or even heretical, perhaps,” Francis stated. “But there is someone who ‘knows’ that despite our differences we are one.” Click here to continue reading.
